I have an issue that I'm trying to figure out the best way to accomplish. We have a whole bunch of procedures that run and import data each night into an Oracle database.
We are migrating some of the stuff over to our SQL Server (SQL Server 2000). What I need is a way to execute the DTS Package not at a specific time, but after the other packages (in Oracle) finish. So what I have been thinking is at the end of the Oracle stuff it would INSERT a line into a row in a table (probably in Oracle, but I might be able to insert into a SQL table if needed).
Now from this point I'm trying to figure out the best way to start the DTS package. I could write an NT Service that monitors the table, but that seems like a lot of extra overhead for this.
So how should I do this?
